Subhash VCDPlayer is a general-purpose media player
with special support for Video CD playback. It also
allows you to capture still images from video files
in bitmap format.
Subhash VCDPlayer tries to combine the stability of
Windows Media Player, the ease of use of Cyberlink
PowerPlayer (with keyboard shortcuts), the system
tray capabilities of Winamp, and file browsing
capabilities of IrfanView.
People who do DV recording will find it particularly
useful as it functions like IrfanView with video
files. Pressing N and P keys with the software allows
one to browse files in a folder.
Apart from being able to play Video CDs, it can also
play all media files such as MPEG, Windows Media
Audio/Video, MP3, Wave, MIDI, etc., that are compatible
with WMP 6.4.
A secret boss key allow the user to remove all traces
of the program from the desktop by replacing the system
tray icon with an invisible icon. This is useful if one
is paranoid about ambushes by one's boss. The user can
later restart from where he/she left off rather than
starting everything all over again. There is also a
choice of six icons to choose from.
The program's commands can be mapped to some function
keys and so the user can control the program even when
he/she is working in some other program. These keys work
even inside games.
Foreign language versions of Subhash VCDPlayer are now available in
Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, French, and Italian.
When the contents of the download file are placed on a VCD, an
autorun-enabled VCD is created. With the previous version, when such a VCD
is inserted inside a CD drive, Windows would ask the person if he/she wanted
to install Subhash VCDPlayer. In the new version, a help file pops up. It
tells the person what a VCD is, about how it could be watched by installing
Subhash VCDPlayer, and should the program be already installed, then to
select it from the Start menu. This prevents the user from accidentally
reinstalling the program twice. The new version has also fixed a flaw in the
image capture function.
